House Intelligence Committee Releases Full Memo Alleging Serious Breaches By FBI In Russian Investigation

HouseofRepSealI will be discussing the memo today in a column in the Hill as well as in the segment with Tucker Carlson.   I fail to see the “grave” classified information that would put the national security at risk.  Indeed, my column addresses the disconnect between the objections made by the FBI and Democratic members and the actual memo. The use of classification laws to prevent disclosure of embarrassing information is itself an abuse of federal law and standards.

The Republicans may have undermined their case by building up this memo as a smoking gun document. Portrayals seems to make this memo the virtual combination of the Pentagon Papers and the Zimmerman telegram. After all of the build up, anything short of a depiction of Hillary Clinton forcing a judge to sign a secret warrant at gunpoint would disappoint most readers. However, there is plenty in this memo that should deeply concern people.

Civil libertarians have complained for years about the tactical use of classification authority by the federal agencies.  This seems a rare and important example of that problem. As to the specific factual representations, they raise clearly troubling questions that need to be addressed on the failure to disclosure information to the FISA court and the alleged heavy reliance on this dossier.

Below is the full memo:


February 2, 2018

The Honorable Devin Nunes
Chairman, House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
United States Capitol
Washington, DC 20515

Dear Mr. Chairman:

On January 29, 2018, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (hereinafter “the Committee”) voted to disclose publicly a memorandum containing classified information provided to the Committee in connection with its oversight activities (the “Memorandum,” which is attached to this letter). As provided by clause 11(g) of Rule of the House of Representatives, the Committee has forwarded this Memorandum to the President based on its determination that the release of the Memorandum would serve the public interest.

The Constitution vests the President with the authority to protect national security secrets from it disclosure. As the Supreme Court has recognized, it is the President’s responsibility to classify, declassify, and control access to information bearing on our intelligence sources and methods and national defense. See, Dep of Navy v. Egan, 484 US. 518, 527 (1988). In order to facilitate appropriate congressional oversight, the Executive Branch may entrust classified information to the appropriate committees of Congress, as it has done in connection with the Committee’s oversight activities here. The Executive Branch does so on the assumption that the Committee will responsibly protect such classified information, consistent with the laws of the United States.

The Committee has now determined that the release of the Memorandum would be appropriate. The Executive Branch, across Administrations of both parties, has worked to accommodate congressional requests to declassify specific materials in the public interest. However, public release of classified information by unilateral action of the Legislative Branch is extremely rare and raises significant separation of powers concerns. Accordingly, the Committee’s request to release the Memorandum is interpreted as a request for declassification pursuant to the President’s authority.

The President understands that the protection of our national security represents his highest obligation. Accordingly, he has directed lawyers and national security staff to assess the declassification request, consistent with established standards governing the handling of classified information, including those under Section 3.1(d) of Executive Order 13526. Those standards permit declassification when the public interest in disclosure outweighs any need to protect the information. The White House review process also included input from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and the Department of Justice. Consistent with this review and these standards, the President has determined that declassification of the Memorandum is appropriate.

Based on this assessment and in light of the significant public interest in the memorandum, the President has authorized the declassification of the Memorandum. To be clear, the Memorandum reflects the judgments of its congressional authors. The President understands that oversight concerning matters related to the Memorandum may be continuing. Though the circumstances leading to the declassification through this process are extraordinary, the Executive Branch stands ready to work with Congress to accommodate oversight requests consistent with applicable standards and processes, including the need to protect intelligence sources and methods.

Subject: Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act Abuses at the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation


This memorandum provides Members an update on significant facts relating to the Committee’s ongoing investigation into the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and their use of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) during the 2016 presidential election cycle. Our findings, which are detailed below, 1) raise concerns with the legitimacy and legality of certain DOJ and FBI interactions with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC), and 2) represent a troubling breakdown of legal processes established to protect the American people from abuses related to the FISA process.

Investigation Update

On October 21, 2016, DOJ and FBI sought and received a FISA probable cause order (notunder Title VII) authorizing electronic surveillance on Carter Page from the FISC. Page is a US citizen who served as a volunteer advisor to the Trump presidential campaign. Consistent with requirements under FISA, the application had to be first certified by the Director or Deputy Director of the FBI. It then required the approval of the Attorney General, Deputy Attorney General (DAG), or the Senate-confirmed Assistant Attorney General for the National Security Division.

The FBI and DOJ obtained one initial FISA warrant targeting Carter Page and three FISA renewals from the FISC. As required by statute (50 U.S.C. 1805(d)(1)), a FISA order on an American citizen must be renewed by the ISC every 90 days and each renewal requires a separate finding of probable cause. Then-Director James Comey signed three FISA applications in question on behalf of the FBI, and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe signed one. Sally Yates, then-Acting DAG Dana Boente, and DAG Rod Rosenstein each signed one or more FISA applications on behalf of DOJ.

Due to the sensitive nature of foreign intelligence activity, FISA submissions (including renewals) before the ISC are classified. As such, the public’s confidence in the integrity of the FISA process depends on the court’s ability to hold the government to the highest standard — particularly as it relates to surveillance of American citizens. However, the rigor in protecting the rights of Americans, which is reinforced by 90-day renewals of surveillance orders, is necessarily dependent on the government’s production to the court of all material and relevant facts. This should include information potentially favorable to the target of the FISA application that is known by the government. In the case of Carter Page, the government had at least four independent opportunities before the FISC to accurately provide an accounting of the relevant facts. However, our findings indicate that, as described below, material and relevant information was omitted.

1) The “dossier” compiled by Christopher Steele (Steele dossier) on behalf of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the Hillary Clinton campaign formed an essential part of the Carter Page FISA application. Steele was a longtime FBI source who was paid over $160,000 by the DNC and Clinton campaign, via the law firm Perkins Coie and research firm Fusion GPS, to obtain derogatory information on Donald Trump’s ties to Russia.

a) Neither the initial application in October 2016, nor any of the renewals, disclose or reference the role of the DNC, Clinton campaign, or any party/campaign in funding Steele’s efforts, even though the political origins of the Steele dossier were then known to senior and FBI officials.

b) The initial FISA application notes Steele was working for a named U.S. person, but does not name Fusion GPS and principal Glenn Simpson, who was paid by a U.S. Law firm (Perkins Coie) representing the DNC (even though it was known by DOJ at the time that political actors were involved with the Steele dossier). The application does not mention Steele was ultimately working on behalf of — and paid by — the DNC and Clinton campaign, or that the FBI had separately authorized payment to Steele for the same information.

2) The Carter Page FISA application also cited extensively a September 23, 2016, Yahoo Newsarticle by Michael Isikoff, which focuses on Page’s July 2016 trip to Moscow. This article does not corroborate the Steele dossier because it is derived from information leaked by Steele himself to Yahoo NewsThe Page FISA application incorrectly assesses that Steele did not directly provide information to Yahoo News. Steele has admitted in British court filings that he met with Yahoo News — and several other outlets – in September 2016 at the direction of Fusion GPS. Perkins Coie was aware of Steele’s initial media contacts because they hosted at least one meeting in Washington DC. in 2016 with Steele and Fusion GPS where this matter was discussed.”

a) Steele was suspended and then terminated as an FBI source for what the FBI defines as the most serious of violations — an unauthorized disclosure to the media of his relationship with the FBI in an October 30, 2016, Mother Jonesarticle by David Corn. Steele should have been terminated for his previous undisclosed contacts with Yahoo and other outlets in September — before the Page application was submitted to the FISC in October — but Steele improperly concealed from and lied to the FBI about those contacts.

b) Steele’s numerous encounters with the media violated the cardinal rule of source handling — maintaining confidentiality — and demonstrated that Steele had become a less than reliable source for the FBI.

3) Before and after Steele was terminated as a source, he maintained contact with DOJ via then-Associate Deputy Attorney General Bruce Ohr, a senior DOJ official who worked closely with Deputy Attorneys General Yates and later Rosenstein. Shortly after the election, the FBI began interviewing Ohr, documenting his communications with Steele. For example, in September 2016, Steele admitted to Ohr his feelings against then-candidate Trump when Steele said he “was desperate that Donald Trump not get elected and was passionate about him not, being president.” This clear evidence of Steele’s bias was recorded by Ohr at the time and subsequently in official FBI files – but not reflected in any of the Page FISA applications.

a) During this same time period, Ohr’s wife was employed by Fusion GPS to assist in the cultivation of opposition research on Trump. Ohr later provided the FBI with all of his wife’s opposition research, paid for by the DNC and Clinton campaign via Fusion GPS. The Ohrs’ relationship with Steele and Fusion GPS was inexplicably concealed from the FISC.

4) According to the head of the counterintelligence division, Assistant Director Bill Priestap, corroboration of the Steele dossier was in its “infancy” at the time of the initial Page FISA application. After Steele was terminated, a source validation report conducted by an independent unit within FBI assessed Steele’s reporting as only minimally corroborated. Yet, in early January 2017, Director Comey briefed President-elect Trump on a summary of the Steele dossier, even though it was — according to his June 2017 testimony – “salacious and unverified.” While the FISA application relied on Steele’s past record of credible reporting on other unrelated matters, it ignored or concealed his
anti-Trump financial and ideological motivations. Furthermore, Deputy Director McCabe testified before the Committee in December 2017 that no surveillance warrant would have been sought from the FISC without the Steele dossier information.

5) The Page FISA application also mentions information regarding fellow Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos, but there is no evidence of any cooperation or conspiracy between Page and Papadopoulos. The Papadopoulos information triggered the opening of an FBI counterintelligence investigation in late July 2016 by FBI agent Pete Strzok. Strzok was reassigned by the Special Counsel’s Office to FBI Human Resources for improper text messages with his mistress, FBI Attorney Lisa Page (no known relation to Carter Page), where they both demonstrated a clear bias against Trump and in favor of Clinton, Whom Strzok had also investigated. The Strzok/Lisa Page texts also reflect extensive discussions about the investigation, orchestrating leaks to the media, and include a meeting with Deputy Director McCabe to discuss an “insurance” policy against President Trump’s election.

  1. What do we know?

    Two years and there exist no evidence Trump to Russa.

    We now know that the DNC and The Clinton Campaigned paid for the Dossier with at least one payment approved and provided by the FBI.

    We know there is a tie from Clinton to Russia and a transfer or transfers of funds

    We know that all witnesses or sources used by the media were un identified and anonymous.

    We know the Clintons, Huma Abedin and others are under investigation

    That’s what we do know.

    Phase Two begins

    The rest is unfounded wishful thinking BS and Schumer.

  2. Bottom line is that the leaders of the DOJ and FBI and all the other Leftist vermin infesting the USA are liars. They are enemies of our nation and Civilization.

    For those who want the real lowdown that liars like Turley won’t and can’t give you (because Turley couldn’t tell the truth if he actually wanted to), here’s a fine summary of what the FISA memo really means.

    1. You’re incapable of thinking. You’re a Leftist bot. Huffington is Leftist junk.

      1. I suspect that you did not even bother to read the piece. How like a foaming fascist.

        1. “Foaming fascist.” I like that. It’s an apt description of Leftist bots like you.

              1. Putin would kill a leftist Russian bot. Too dangerous for this capitalist. I did go to Talliesen West. Wright has quite a few wives and carried on with da others reminded me of T rump’s life.

              2. And, there’s that worn-out tactic, again- volleying back the criticism leveled at the right wing or Russian bot farm, without even bothering to alter it.
                Paul, contact the Recode website and ask them to do a follow-up to their charts that showed Russian on-line activity in the U.S. In the follow-up, Recode can show U.S. government on-line activity in Russia, which is the parallel.
                fyi, Americans posting in the U.S. are citizens highlighting the threats to democracy from men like the Koch’s and from the Kremlin because our politicians were bought.
                And, yes, Trump was their victory and the U.S.’ loss. Credit where credit is due.

                1. Linda – good morning, glad to see our Russian bot is up and active. Do you have your bullet points for the day?

        2. David, I don’t know whether or not Ralph read the memo, but if you read it you didn’t understand its meaning. The memo was relatively simple, at least simple enough for a teenager to understand and recognize wrongdoing. You taught young people and now you pretend ignorance? Alternatively were you ignorant all along? I don’t think so.

          One of the earliest things we teach our children is right from wrong.

    2. Thanks, David, for informing us that FISA is too difficult for you to understand. Very short summary follows.

      “Andrew McCabe confirmed that no FISA warrant would have been sought from the FISA Court without the Steele dossier information.”

  3. What Turley WON’T tell you is that many members of the Secret Society Swamp–Comey, Yates, Rosenstein, etc.–have VIOLATED THE LAW. Comey & Co. can argue all day that he didn’t “intend” to violate the US Constitution and the law, but the law is absolutely clear:

    18 U.S. Code § 242 – Deprivation of rights under color of law
    US Code

    Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 696; Pub. L. 90–284, title I, § 103(b), Apr. 11, 1968, 82 Stat. 75; Pub. L. 100–690, title VII, § 7019, Nov. 18, 1988, 102 Stat. 4396; Pub. L. 103–322, title VI, § 60006(b), title XXXII, §§ 320103(b), 320201(b), title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(H), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 1970, 2109, 2113, 2147; Pub. L. 104–294, title VI, §§ 604(b)(14)(B), 607(a), Oct. 11, 1996, 110 Stat. 3507, 3511.)

      1. The submission of false information to a court to obtain to obtain a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, either knowingly or with recklessness, as occurred in Comey-Muellergate, was a violation of 18 U.S. Code § 242. Perhaps under your Leftist Police State Wet Dream, such actions are perfectly reasonable and acceptable, but not under U.S. law.

  4. Comey so smug.

    James Comey
    ‏Verified account @Comey

    That’s it? Dishonest and misleading memo wrecked the House intel committee, destroyed trust with Intelligence Community, damaged relationship with FISA court, and inexcusably exposed classified investigation of an American citizen. For what? DOJ & FBI must keep doing their jobs.


    ‏Verified account @Jim_Jordan
    Replying to @Comey

    That’s it? Top brass at FBI/DOJ take “salacious & unverified”(your words, not mine) partisan funded dossier to get secret warrant from secret court to spy on private American on rival campaign. Doesn’t bother you? Bothers me. And more importantly, it bothers the American people.

    1. Autumn,…
      A Senator correctly noted that Comey ” was about as popular as cholera” with both Democrats and Republicans…..this comment was made within a week or so of Comey’s dismissal.
      Now that Comey is at odds with Trump, his overall reputation has been somewhat “rehabilitated” by Democrats.😉
      There was a great article about Comey on the spring of 2017, maybe two months before Comey was fired.
      I’ll try to dig it up and provide the source. But to summarize, the article said that Comey had a history, an ingrained characteristic, which caused him to view himself as “THE moral force, THE moral arbitrator” in most matters.
      That is not an exact quote, but it’s very close to one of the observations of the author.
      And it struck at the time, and now, as being a completely accurate observation about Comey.

      1. Sounds like an interesting article. I hope that you are able to find the link.

        Just for fun, here are three philosophical aphorism that you’ll never, ever, ever see on Comey’s twitter acount:

        “The louder he talked of his honor, the faster we counted our spoons.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson),

        “Patriotism is the last refuge of the scoundrel.” (Samuel Johnson), and

        “You will not become a saint through other people’s sins.” (Anton Chekov).

        And, yes, I know the last one is from a Russian.

        1. Jokerman,…
          -I haven’t been able to track down the article yet….I’ll probably find it eventually.
          In searching for that article, I found one that I hadn’t seen before:
          “Is James Comey too self-righteous to save us from terrorism?”
          -by Daniel Klaidman, Newsweek, June 5, 2013

          This article was written after Comey was nominated in 2013, but before his confirmation.
          So years before his involvement in the 2016 election, some who were familiar with Comey noted that characteristic; that Comey had a tendency to view himself as the “moral saviour”, and that his self-righteousness could cause problems.
          I can’t post the link, but it’s easy to find the article on the internet.
          I think the 2017 article that I originally mentioned, the one I’m still looking for, was also in Newsweek…the one that was published shortly before Comey was fired.

  5. No wonder Comey is putting out cheery Tweets. Deep State doing what it does best – protecting its own.

    On The Same Day Trump Releases the Nunes Memo A Federal Judge Keeps The Comey Memos Secret

    “On the same day the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence released the Nunes memo showing the FBI relied on the salacious and unverified Trump dossier to obtain a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a federal judge ruled to withhold the Comey memos. The memos, authored by former FBI Director James Comey, are about his nine private conversations with President-elect and President Trump.

    U.S. District Judge James Boasberg, who ruled in favor of the FBI’s request to keep the Comey memos secret, also sits on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court. The FISA court is the same court that approved the surveillance on Trump associates.”

    1. Comey threw Clinton under da bridge da last week of the election and protected Carter’s Page and T rrump. The American people had a right to know both T rump and Clinton were unde investigation. I blame Comey for T rump’s election.

    1. Autumn, He is a loyal member of The Swamp. The guy gives me the creeps. Weaponizing the DOJ and FBI by Obama/Hillary and Henry Gibson is going after cannabis busts. That’s on Trump, he appointed the little weasel.

      1. Agree Nick – Trump did a spectacularly bad job choosing him. But he can be fired and replaced right?

        1. T rump liked him cause he was and old confederate that would go after da Mary Jane users.

      2. Nick, don’t blame Trump for Sessions. Sessions is slightly diminutive and soft-spoken but has a solid reputation. A lot of the very intelligent and politically astute people that stand for America and the Constitution believed in Sessions. That group was fooled so how could an outsider like Trump not be fooled as well? Trump had to rely on others more politically knowledgeable to choose the people he wanted around him.

        1. Allan – I was never fooled by the little troll – my litmus test was (is) who supported the TPP. No patriot could possibly support it.

          So, alright – Trump got fooled – now he needs to get rid of him ASAP.

          1. You were never fooled because of TPP? I don’t think TPP relates to the justice department and the ability to root out crimes. Do you have a better reason? Sessions was against the TPP.

            1. I think Sessions is doing the rope a dope. He’s AG, not a Senator. I suspect a lot is going on behind the scenes and Sessions is keeping his cards close to his vest.
              Kind of hard to babble about him being a partisan when he has been silent and deliberative.

              We don’t need an activist Attorney General, we need one who acts. We have no way of knowing at this stage, if he is taking the appropriate steps.

              1. “Kind of hard to babble about him being a partisan when he has been silent …” — or as the old farm saying familiar to serious investigators goes: Fox don’t make no noise while he’s INSIDE the chicken coop.

                Smartest thing Sessions could do is saying as little as possible while information is being collected and analyzed.

                1. I should add to your comment, “We don’t need an activist Attorney General, we need one who acts.”. What Sessions has given us is an activist assistant attorney general who acts in a fashion that is against the law so by being too inactive Sessions has permitted the opposition to be in charge of events that are damaging the nation.

              2. From all appearances, Sessions dropped the ball. He recused himself too early and that is if he had to recuse himself at all. Whether Sessions will pick up the ball at a later date is unknown, but with time it seems less and less likely. Of course, none of us know what is going on behind the scenes.

                As far as playing rope a dope. That is a strategy in a win or lose competition and is not a strategy for ongoing matters where time is of the essence. I can’t predict the future with accuracy nor can I read minds though our friends on the left think they can do both. Then again our friends on the left can’t even see that the memo reveals serious flaws at the FBI.

                1. Allan,
                  – ..Given that Sessions DID recuse himself, I think he’s limited in his ability to involve himself in anything connected with the “Russia issue”.
                  That exchange that Jan. 2017 exchange he had with Sen. Franken…EX-Senator Franken, now….was one of the sloppiest Q&A exchanges I’ve seen in a Senate confirmation hearing.

  6. I am watching the Sean Hannity show on Fox. He is doing a good job describing the aspects of all of this.

    We need Justice in America.

  7. We have a secret police — FBI — and a secret star chamber — FISC — to rubber-stamp virtually everything. The 30,000 approvals vs 12 rejections. The folks who wrote the constitution would not approve.

    1. “FBI warns that Republican memo could undermine faith in massive, unaccountable, secret government agencies.
      -The Onion, Feb.1,2018

  8. Trump should have cleaned house and fired Mueller early on. Now we have to go on and on and on with bogus Russia collusion stories…………

    “Russia probe lawyers think Mueller could indict Trump: Many legal scholars doubt a U.S. vs. Trump case is possible, but two attorneys who have dealt with special counsel Robert Mueller’s team disagree. One expects Mueller to move as early as this spring”

  9. A foreign agent shows up with a file of unconfirmed sex innuendos to mess in our election and he gets taken seriously by our crack team of top cops? He should have been on the next plane out of the U.S . with the knowledge that he was now on a no fly list. I think the agents involved have been shown to be comprised by a foreign operative in an attempt to remove the elected president (one I didn’t vote for).
    What a mess

    1. OhioJ,..
      In addition to involving themselves in the 2016 election political controversies and investigations, Christopher Steele and Fusion GPS are being sued in civil court.
      The civil suits I’ve read about are in the U.K.; those should be interesting to follow.
      There could always be a settlement or a terminated lawsuit for other reasons, but if these cases proceed to trial we may get additional information about the activities of FusionGPS and Steele.

      1. TN re: ” if these cases proceed to trial we may get additional information about the activities of FusionGPS and Steele.” yes, but so what? We already have plenty of information and nothing ever changes. We live in a banana republic – corporations and their well compensated minions run the nation.

        1. Autumn,…
          One thing that might change is that firms like FusionGPS and Orbis will think twice before seeking foreign-based opposition reseach/ gossip.
          And political parties probably won’t fund these projects, like the DNC and Hillary Campaign Committee did in 2016.

      2. Steele has already been rigorously deposed in at least one suit in British Court. Most of what he knows has already been recorded under oath, I believe something like a year ago. Whatever information is relevant to the case(s) in British court is probably already gotten, so it won’t matter whether the case(s) go to trial.

        1. W. Bayer,..
          I haven’t seen very much media coverage about any of the civil suits.
          Do you know if Steele’s deposition is, or will be made, public?
          Beyond deposing the parties to the lawsuit, I thought that additional information might come out in the give and take of a trial.
          The Washington Times (Dec.20,2017) had an article about the civil suit against Steele filed in Florida.
          “Christopher Steele hedges in Florida civil suit about Trump link to Russia”.
          There’s not a lot of detail in that article, but as I mention, there seems to be little media coverage of these civil suits.

    2. In Russia, they don’t put people on planes to force them out of the country. They poison them or, report they’ve had heart attacks in the trunks of their cars.

  10. Worth remember this! These Congress critters need to be tossed out.

    Just voted three weeks ago to increase the domestic spying powers of the DOJ/FBI while blocking all safeguards and reforms to prevent FISA abuses

    1. Here’s to hopin Nunes is tossed. Greenwald thinks da Devin is one of da many hypocrites up there.

  11. Isn’t it amazing how everything Hillary Rotten Clinton touches turns to crap? She had total control over the DNC, a compliant media, AND the DOJ working overtime for her yet she still lost the election. Then she writes a book about it that’s all about “woulda coulda shouda if I could have do over”. As Secretary of State – leaving Benghazi out of this for a second – she lost tens of thousands of classified emails. (Reality Leigh Winner is in custody right now for leaking just one). Bringing Benghazi back into the fold, to this day we still don’t know what she said when the 7th floor (or is it the 9th floor) of Foggy Bottom called Madam Secretary and explained that her dear friend Chris was under attack. (I’ll buy you an adult beverage if you can prove Hillary knew her Ambassador to Libya personally). There simply is no success story any credible person can credibly connect to Hillary Clinton.

    Before the bots on here trot out her Senate career, I’ll advise them not to. As Senator she introducted precisely three pieces of legislation. They all named local things (posts offices and roads) after people. She all but voted “present” as a Senator from a state she never lived in.

      1. Worth noting too, we have to go overseas to the UK media for reporting because a story like this would never see the light of day on NYT, MSNBC, CNN, et al.

  12. And, there it is again, the hackneyed technique of volleying back the criticism that describes the right wing, without exerting any effort to alter it. Up your game, …ork sop.

  13. KT McFarland’s answers about Flynn and Sergey Kislyak were sought in the Russian investigation. She’s now, asked Trump to withdraw her nomination for a government position-more of Trump’s “good people” (sarcasm).
